AxisAndOhs Version 3.20 released

Recommended Posts

Hello @ll,

AxisAndOhs version 3.20 build 43 has been uploaded to the shops today. You can get the new version (only) from your account on SimMarket/Justflight.

Be advised - with this version the default IP ports change to 43380 for the WebAPI and 43280 for the WebFIPs (instead of 9080/8080). This is mostly important for new users, existing users are not affected immediately. Just bear this in mind should you download a new version of an AAO add (StreamDeck plugin!), that you may have to change the port in the plugin.

Another important change is the option to group buttons and axis into color coded "Control Layers". Please take a look into the AAO manual to find out more)

Finally, there is a prototype of a Gauge Editor available on the Desktop Virtual Instruments dialog. This editor is very much a prototype - it works, but it will have quirks or even bugs. The intension is to build this tool up using the feedback from the content creators (hoping that the graphical editor will draw in more people who wish to make sim-external gauges)

This is the changelog:

- IMPORTANT CHANGE: 
  WebAPI: Default Port is now 43380 (instead of 9080)
  Gauges: Default Port is now 43280 (instead of 8080)
  Make sure to revisit AAO addon modules and adapt the port if necessary

- IMPORTANT CHANGE: 
  Added option to group buttons and axis into color coded "control layers", so all imputs can have multiple uses

- Change: option to always run the app as administrator added to the Application menu (true by default)
- Change: Gauges: Graphical Gauge Editor Prototype
- Change: Gauges: WebFIPs can now be resized at runtime
- Change: RPN: added 'scon' operator
- Change: RPN: added 'ssplit' operator.
- Change: RPN: added 'unixts' and 'lvar' operators
- Change: RPN: added default variables (L:PauseState) and (L:SimState) that report the current state of the 3D simulation (0/1)
- Change: RPN: Added LISTEN_FOR_VOICE script header
- Change: RPN: Added (SENDMAIL:) command
- Change: RPN: added "(LOAD_SIMBRIEF:xxx)" command to download your flight data into LVars.

- Change: WebAPI: added option for the WebAPI to use POST requests

- Bugfix: Gauges: Eliminated jumping labels

- Bugfix: fixed lag when scripts are calling other scripts as K: events

Oh, and I forgot to mention another big change:

you no longer have to activate the AAO InGame panel when you only want to access BVars. Those are handled differently in version 3.2

Could you provide more information on what this is and how we would use it with perhaps an example? Thank You...

The general idea is that every button can do different things by creating multiple assignments on different control layers. You can add any number of layers that you want, and you can toggle between them with buttons too. 

Example: you have a joystick button box with a limited number of switches. You can then build a setup where you color code electrics in the red layer, hydraulics in the yellow layer and anti ice in the green layer. The trick will be to memorize what each button does on each control layer, but that is the general principle.

And - maybe take a look into the AAO manual (it is available for download too, right where you get the DEMO version that you must try out before purchase). Clicking on the "?" button in the top menu will also open the PDF. Control layers are described in chapter 3.5, pretty much at the beginning.
